iTunes Editors' Notes

This “Duffle Bag Boy” made a splash with Playaz Circle in the '00s, but he’s been “ridin’ around and gettin’ it” ever since going solo as 2 Chainz. Leading up to the release of his studio debut, Based on a T.R.U. Story, the Atlanta representative appeared on hot tracks with Kanye West (“Mercy”) and Nicki Minaj (“Beez in the Trap”). The household names return the favor by appearing on 2 Chainz’s full-length. Backed by dramatic beats draped with sinister-sounding synths, the former college athlete asserts that he’s a baller in more ways than one—whether it was as a young hustler (“Crack,” “Dope Peddler”) or as a current celebrity and ladies’ man, who sounds like he’s channeling Jay-Z on “Money Machine.” The raunchy rapper links with R&B singers to steam things up on “Extremely Blessed” (featuring The-Dream) and “In Town" (featuring Mike Posner); plus, he reconnects with his Playaz Circle partner, Dolla Boy, for “Stop My Now," which evokes old-school soul. A-list cameos (including appearances by Chris Brown and John Legend) help make this one of our favorites, but the clincher is the triumphant, horn-peppered “I Feel Good.”
